You want more? The Qing was when the Manchus took over China (sort of like if Texans took over the entire US for a few hundred years.) They beat the Ming Dynasty to do it - and the Mings were one the most sophisticated dynasties in Chinese history (you may be familiar with their sweet vases). They took it from the Yuan Dynasty, aka the Mongols (Genghis Khan and such.) The Qing was also the last of the Chinese imperial dynasties before the country shifted to the various 20th century political systems. The Last Emperor was about the last Qing emperor, and his efforts to hold on to the throne in the midst of the country being modernized, almost against its will. Chinese history is fascinating stuff - but so is most history, I think.

Charles gets lots of points in my book for always responding to tweets in a very timely fashion! (Still have that download code by the way, Charles!)
Great job on the interview, Jef.
